Strong premiere for Big Brother 13

Ratings for last night’s premiere are up, up, up! The show garnered over 7 million viewers total which is a 2.7 rating in the coveted 18-49 age bracket. That is up 8% over last years premiere and the best in season premiere in over 4 years. However, it was down slightly from last year’s season finale. Still pretty good considering the show is in it’s 13 season and remains relatively the same year-to-year. The show beat our Expedition Impossible over on ABC.

In Canada the ratings were also up winning the timeslot. The show garnered 1.7 million total viewers for the hour and ruled the roost in key markets like Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary and nearly doubled the numbers of CTV’s broadcast of Expedition Impossible.

Good job to the cast and crew! Now let’s keep it up.
